Splitting this from other post as per Richard's advice Smile

The rear window seal fits fairly loosely on the early 996's I am led to believe. There is a TB from Porsche regarding this; the trick is to insert two lengths of Foam rubber cord under the seal.

The cord is only a few pounds from an OPC.

First, I lifted the window seal up from the corner, all along the bottom and side, I then cleaned out any gunk and moisture.

After this, I placed the seal back down and pressed down firmly all around. Then, lifting the bottom corner of the seal, I positioned one end of the foam cord under the seal:



I then inserted a plastic spatula / card between the seal and the tailgate:



This gave me an easy way to flex the window seal to create a margin to push the foam rubber cord in with another card without damaging anything:



I continued to work my way around the seal:



When the cord was fully inserted, I cut, and then repeated the process to layer two cords on top of each other to fully fill the gap as per the technical bulletin. Once that was completed, I gently went along the seal '*****' it upward to make sure that it was all in the right position and flush with the tailgate:



All done, much more solid, and sealed much better:



Cheers,


Steve

Hi Steve,
I think I'll need the foam rubber. Have a buzz from the rear screen that stops with hand pressure. Went to local OPC to ask for the foam rubber and got a completely blank look. Didn't know what I was talking about. Suggested changing the rear seal itself?? I've tried google search but to no avail. Anyone know where else I could get one??

Hi, really sorry for the super late delay, I've not been around for quite a few months.

You've probably found it, but if not part code is:

996 541 903 00

Official part name is 'Round Rubber Cord'


Cheers

Thanks for the PDF. The noise has kinda disappeared and my c4s is MY04. I guess it should be the updated version then?!
